First ever spoonbill fledged on Griend island


This is a spoonbill video.

According to the Ecomare site in the Netherlands, for the first time ever this year, three spoonbill couples have nested on Griend island.

Unfortunately, floods destroyed two nests.

In the third nest, a female chick survived. It was ringed, so its future movements may be studied.
